Singita Serengeti House is an exclusive and luxurious property located in the private 350,000-acre Singita Grumeti Game Reserve, Northern Tanzania. This stunning ‘home from home’, perched on the Sasakwa hillside, offers fabulous views across the vast plains and unsurpassable comfort in a truly wild location.
With its wide-open verandas and tasteful blend of European design and African artefacts, Singita Serengeti House provides a deluxe yet unpretentious retreat with a tennis court and a fabulous 25-metre infinity pool overlooking a salt-lick and water hole often frequented by a family of elephants. Archery is offered and there is a high-end spa and gym at the nearby Sasakwa Lodge. Somewhat unusually for a property of its calibre, the house has been specifically designed to welcome families and small groups of friends. Its commitment to supporting the local community means that staff members are from the surrounding area and much of the food served in the restaurant is locally sourced. There is relaxed ‘family-style’ dining, with platters of food served in the centre of the table and there is also an award-winning wine cellar. Attention to detail is a given and the facilities and service are outstanding.
Up to 8 guests can stay at the property. There are two elegant suites located in the main house plus two detached garden suites. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, spacious and well-appointed, all with their own viewing veranda and en-suite bathroom. Each of the large bathrooms has a double vanity basin, a shower and a free-standing bath.
There are plenty of activities to enjoy in the locality. Private game drives in state-of-the-art landrovers offer visitors the opportunity to view up-close the great variety of wildlife found in this area including cheetah, bearded wildebeest, Bat Eared Fox, giraffe, lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and more. It is worth noting that the Migration Path varies from year to year and at times this location may not be the best in the Serengeti for game-viewing, although nothing can really detract from the enjoyment of a stay at this first-class property. Walking and horseback safaris (experienced riders only) are also offered, as are early morning Balloon Safaris. The private nature of the Grumeti reserve means that night time safaris are possible.
In the interest of safety, participation of children in game activities is at the discretion of the guide. A babysitting service is provided, along with myriad activities tailored to children's needs including arts and crafts, baking with chefs, butterfly capture (with identification and subsequent release), face painting and a fantastic mini-rangers course involving tracking animals, an astronomy safari, flower-pressing, and tuition in bush survival techniques.
Singita Serengeti house offers a private safari experience in opulent but relaxed surroundings. The price tag is high but you most certainly get what you pay for; this is one of the best safari properties in Africa and will not disappoint.
Thanks for all your help in making the arrangements, everything went so smoothly from landing in Jo’burg to departing a week later.
We all had a fantastic time, Kirsty (our youngest) was able to go on all the game drives and we were very well looked after both on the drives and back at the lodge. The food was great, staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble for them (e.g. providing hot milk for Kirsty at bedtime). The kids all enjoyed the rock pool during the day and we all loved the game drives.
We were lucky enough to see all the big 5, with the additions of Cheetah & Wild Dogs. I think it was the second to last day before we managed to see some Hippo (and finally I’ve been able to take some photos of them - I have only ever seen them at night before). We had the adventure of being caught up with some Lionesses stalking a herd of Zebra (one of the younger Lionesses went a bit early & scattered the herd).
We’re certainly aiming to go on safari again although it will be a while before we save enough to go again (maybe the kids will be taking us next time!)

I had just the most incredible time on the climb.
The team were incredible and just so accommodating. I really only have good things to say as it was such a great experience.
George was as good as a guide as it gets, very articulate and made sure I was comfortable the whole way up with frequent briefings.

We had an amazing time thank you. The itinerary was great as we felt like we saw lots of different things and it kept it interesting for our daughter. She especially loved the gorge at Hells Gate.
Unfortunately the Menengai Crater walk was a bit hard for her although that probably had something to do with how hot it was!
We especially loved the Sunbird Lodge - it is such a beautiful place and all the staff were so incredibly welcoming and friendly.
Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional too and we can’t speak highly enough of him.
